In 1939 Joseph Gerber (advertising agency owner) had custom knife maker David Murphy make 24 sets of carving knife for some of his select customers. Catalog retailer Abercrombie & Fitch saw them and was so impressed with the quality of the knives they wanted to sell them. Thus was born Gerber Legendary Blades.

According to all information I've found (especially Mr. Rodenberg's book A Chronology of Gerber Legendary Blades), this set shouldn't exist.
The Durendal and Ron made their first appearance in 47, but Gerber didn't make the Snickersnee until 1948, making it GERBER-10 stamped
If anybody has information about them, I'd be indebted to you if you could post it or send it to me.
They're just like I got them. They don't look to have been used or sharpened. I did clean the box and put a coat of wax on it. Made a world of difference.
My name is Mud,
But call me Alowishus Devadander Abercrombie
That's long for Mud, so I've been told

No information, but very nice and super rare. It should be worth a lot. I like these. Bryan
